"I haven't seen the stage yet, I really want to!" were the first words that the Italian performer, Marco Mengoni, told us upon his arrival backstage in the Malmö Arena. "But already here in the green room is huge! I can already feel that the organisation is perfect, it feels relaxing in here".
Marco seemed quite relaxed hanging out with his delegation: "nervous? no, i'm not nervous, I'm sleepy". Only last night he took part in a live concert in Milan as part of the tight schedule that has followed his victory at the popular Italian Festival di Sanremo.
The singer is all alone on stage, the song doesn't feature any backing vocals, fitting the spirit of the song title L'Essenziale (the essential) and all the focus is on Marco.
